This is a difficult performance to review because I don't want to give away one ounce of enjoyment that you will get from attending this wonderful piece of intimate theatre from The Studio Theatre Company.
Beautifully written by Chris Chibnall, the writer of Broadchurch and Dr Who, this is a story of new love and old love. It’s about being together with a ‘The one’ from now and forever, come what may.
The short time we spend in the company of that first sunrise of young romance with Tony and Ruth and loves sunset with the 50-year relationship between Don and Edie is intensely captivating and truly unforgettable.
James Bruzas, Sophie Marsden, Stuart Nicklin and Ellen Kilvington each gave outstanding individual performances, performing with such believability and emotional depth that I felt like I was eavesdropping on real lives as opposed to watching a play.
Directors Jack Fairey and Laura Hannawin and producer Luke Burton should be so proud of this presentation and I wish I could tell you more, but I really don't want to spoil the experience.
Suffice to say, you will laugh out loud, you will feel good, you will feel sad, you may even shed a tear or two, but above all, your emotions will thank you for the workout.
